As a dog that is always looking to improve my health, find tasty meals and new places to visit and explore, I can become a little overwhelmed with all the information from the interwebs, books, magazines, you name it, I’m sure you feel the same wagging way.
So I was very happy to join in on Something Wagging This Way Comes wonderful Pet Blogger Gift Exchange! Here you will find great blogs and new websites to explore. It also helps you discover more about these fantastic blogs and maybe learn something new about one your favorite blogs.
So when I was lucky enough to be paired with Peggy’s Pet Place written by a freelance writer specializing in pets, it got my ears moving with that little tilt to my head, thinking what a lucky pup to explore this wonderful blog and it got me really intrigued!
So who is Peggy Frezon?
Well first off she is an author of an excellent book called Dieting with my Dog which is about a honest and loving story of her journey from being overweight and unhealthy, to losing 20lbs and feeling great. Her dog, Kelly, was carrying a few extra pounds around her middle that was cause for concern. Both of them tell their story and work together to shed their pounds and improve their health. Could be something to think about and perhaps make a resolution for 2013. This would be the perfect book to read while you and your dog start a new plan of being healthy, fit and trim!
She also wrote Heart to Heart, Hand in Paw, a true tale of faith and the healing bonds of animals. Luanne’s story shares how our pets can love, comfort and teach us as we take our own journey through life.
Both of these books would make excellent gifts to add to your wagging library!
She has two real cute dogs: There’s Kelly, our 10-year old cockier spaniel-long haired dachshund mix, and she’s the one in the book. She also just adopted Brooks, an 11-year old Golden Retriever.
As you know I always like to ask…
What’s your best advice on owning a dog?
I just love sharing my home with dogs. I think it’s up to us to try to figure out what they need, and to understand what they’re telling us (through barking, body language, expressions). That, and just love them. A lot.
Advice on travelling with pets?
We take Kelly and Brooks on short trips and overnights. I like to take them on a long walk or run and get them tired out before the drive. Also- bring lots of water. If you’re planning a trip, it’s great to know that there are many truly pet friendly options out there! I’ve found several inns not too far away that actually cater to guests with pets and offer accommodations with pet beds and bowls, hiking trails, agility courses and things to do with your pet as well. Visit great websites such as Go Pet Friendly, which is devoted to helping you find pet friendly hotels, campgrounds, restaurants and attractions wherever you want to travel.
Wagging Website Peggy’s Pet Place
Her website is a wonderful and informative mix of stories about Kelly, excellent book reviews, tips and honest reviews of some pretty cool products. I would absolutely bookmark her website and make it a must read.
